Kate Middleton 5 ft 10
|Kate wears Zara Dress, L. K. Bennett Shoes and (unconfirmed) River Island Jacket (Oh and the future king of England on her arm).|
Kate's general style seems to be country chic. She often wears simple plain items, layered on top of each other. A pair of trousers teamed with a t-shirt and blazer, or a plain dress and jacket. Of course it helps that she doesn't ever have to walk very far- instead being driven about by armored guard. This means she is never in the cold for very long (unlike most of us)! Her evening wear tends to be very plain in colour, but elegant long lines, teamed with simple accessories. Notice how all the styles clinch in her at her waist, and go down to the floor- no tall girl problems for her!

|Simple jeans, LKBennett shoes, plane jacket and ruffle blouse.|
|The LKBennett wedges again! Casual Kate. I think its a Mulberry Jacket.|
Kate likes to champion British 'high street' Fashion however some of it is not very 'highstreet'! Known favorite stores include;
Jigsaw (where she used to work)
Most of the upper end designers such as Issa are on Net-a-Porter and My Wardrobe although it's worth looking on Ebay for items, especially the high street items!
|L. K. Bennett|
She seems to favour the 'nude pump' as a day to day staple. Her favorite pair are the Nude Sledge heels from L. K Bennett. She also likes Jimmy Choo but for those of use with a more modest budget, Kate has been seen wearing navy pumps which have been cited as Prada or these Barratts Navy 3.5inch pumps (which are now reduced to £20!!)
Of course I couldn't do a post on Kate Middleton's Style without posting 'that' dress. So here you are, Kate Middleton on her wedding day wearing two Alexander McQueen wedding dresses. Notice how they accentuate her tiny frame into an hourglass shape? (There were hip pads underneath!)

P.s. Just to prove that she is one of us- here she is with a little (only a little) 'tall girl stoop'
What do you think of Kate's style? Does she play it too safe?
